Price cuts, new bundles, new cheaper hardware.

Doubt it they have their best lineup in years coming out this year going into next.

I don't understand why everybody expects a price cut for the Wii U. They've already given us one, it's already a lot cheaper than the competition, and it comes with two games for no extra price (if you get a bundle). It's already selling at a loss! Hell, the PS4 isn't even selling at a loss. As for a PS4 price cut. I'd buy one after a price cut.
The console also has games that make it worth that money unlike the other, more expensive, consoles.

The Wii U is a great system, well worth its current price. I doubt a price cut would change much anyway. The problem seems to be the public's reception of the system, rather then the price. Why else would more expensive systems with worse games be outselling it?

Two things;

First: Having a system with entirely new hardware come out, would be spitting in the face of people who have already bought one.
Sega did that, and it killed them.
Not gonna happen. Quit wishing for it. It's a stupid idea.

Second: The slash to their earnings forecast already pissed off investors due to the drop in profits for them.
If they lowered the price AGAIN, the forecast for their overall profits would lower itself AGAIN, because they'd make far less per console sold.
They'd be pulling a PS3, and Nintendo wouldn't be dumb enough to do that since they want to support the Wii U through its entire life-cycle.

Price drop would be a bad thing; not going to happen.[especially for $99,99. Talk about greedy consumers. It's worth more than that]

If you people actually want a Wii U for cheaper, LOOK ONLINE, for Heaven's sake!
There's almost always a deal going on for Wii U bundles SOMEWHERE! Quit being lazy and LOOK AROUND!
